Skin Camouflage

Skin Camouflage is useful cosmetic for covering skin defects. A concealing cream may be applied to the skin prior to a foundation. The foundation in this case should either be sheer or opaque. Loose powder can then be used on top to set the foundation.

Examples:
Hyperflage® from Dormer Laboratories Ltd.
Dermablend®
CoverMark Face Magic®
There are a number of different skin colors that can be concealed.

Steps to Applying Camouflage:

  1. Cleanse the skin
  2. Apply Hyperflage® sparingly to the lesion or area to be hidden.
  3. Different colored creams may be required depending on the color of the defect to be concealed. (see below)
  4. Let cream dry for a few minutes
  5. Foundation should be applied with a dry wedge sponge

Sheer foundation needs two applications for moderate coverage.

Opaque foundation covers moderately on the first coat. Additional applications may be used. Let it dry for a few minutes. Multiple thin layers may be used for maximum coverage.

Loose powder may be applied with a cosmetic foam disc. After drying, excess powder may be removed by a complexion brush.
